They’re fantastically quick (ALWAYS a huge win for me) and they taste super delicious. They’re also secretly healthy, but shhhh we don’t have to tell anyone that!
The texture is more dense and chewy than regular muffins, since they’re made with oats which are a great healthy alternative to regular all purpose flour.
The batter is made in the blender! I absolutely love easy and delicious recipes, and this recipe is definitely a keeper. I’ve made at least 6 batches of these healthy banana bread muffins in the last few weeks.
What You Need
- Oats (I used quick cooking oats because that’s what I had on hand)
- 2 very ripe bananas (click here for my tips on how to quickly ripen bananas)
- Yogurt (I used plain yogurt but greek yogurt would be great too)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Baking powder and baking soda as the leavening agents
- Vanilla, salt and
- chocolate chips
These healthy banana oat muffins require NO:
There are a lot of options that you can use as add ins:
- Finely chopped apple

How to Freeze
To freeze, first wrap each muffin individually with cling film. Then place them into an airtight container, and freeze up to one month.
To thaw, simply let them thaw at room temperature or gently heat in the microwave.
If you’d just like to store these muffins for a few days, then you can simply store them in an airtight container upto 4 days.

Is it possible to make these muffins into bread?
Yes you should be able to, but as I haven't tried it myself I'm unsure of the time it would take to bake it.
These look like the perfect breakfast. It will be a good way to entertain the kids. 🙂
Thanks Bee! 🙂
